Harry Ferguson is the tractor magnate whose patent battles with Ford Motor Co. won him nine million dollars in infi" ;ement costs Reported tc be completely new in concept, the Ferguson car is said in British press accounts to threaten to revolutionize the auto making industry. Already four big motor manufacturers are said to be courting Ferguson for a share in mass producing the new auto which does away with conventional brakes gear box, clutch and transmission. Big Advance Government experts who h watched a military version of the cfr on exhaustive tests are reported convinced it is the biggest advance in military transport since the first tank lumbered Over the Top in Flanders in World War I. So lar no details of the new auto have been made public-but a number of "leaks" has enabled the following picture to be pieced together. The secret of the new car is a li-rge pressure chamber pumping out hydraulic fluid to drive-and brake—all four wheels by small turbines and to operate the independent suspension system and other power units. . t The engine is merely a subsidiary of this hydraulic system. It could be carried on a trailer hooked behind the car and linked to it with a. single oil pressure cable. The motor is close-coupled to the hydraulic pump, which compresses oil in a pressure chamber. From this chamber, high pressure oil jets are taken to small turbines which drive all four wheels through short, flexible couplings. Braking is effected oy a simple, two-way valve. When the brake pedal is depressed, the power jet is directed to the reverse side of the turbine to produce an even slopping pre- -.ure on all four wheels. It is claimed this braking system minimizes skidding, since pressure would be constant on all four wheels. The engine ana pressure chamber are under the rear passenger seat, giving improved road holding characteristics. Oil fluid from the pressure chamber can be used to operate pow- Reds, Catholic Unions Lose Ground in France PARIS (/P)—Communist nnd Catholic unions have lost some ground in elections for administrators ot" the social security organization while the Socialist union gained more strength. The Reds, however, were still far ahend in the voting. Complete returns were announced Wednesday for the elections last Thursday. More than eight million —73 per cent—of the eligible workers voted. This was how the vote split 1950 results in Parentheses: Communist-led General Confederation of Labor CGT—43 per cent; General Confederation ot Christian Workers OFTO—20,9 per cent 21.3; and Socialist- working FO—16.2 per cent 15.1.

Last weekend Sir Miles Thomas, boss of the state-owned British Overseas Airways car joined Ferguson as a top sales and production director with full government blessing. "Mr. Ferguson's car coull give us a world, beating lead in motor exports," he told newsmen. "It does not require any extravagant expenditure on new machine too! equipment," he said, "and with a really mass volume of production could bring down the costs." Thomas was emphatic that the invention should be exploited by Britain alone. Asked if foreign companies Would be interested in building the car if British firms turned it clown he declared: "I view that prospect with hor- The tabloid Daily Sketch, urging >*$ j^°^ ~g't was swift government action to exploit the new car, said the cost of manufacture should be offset by government contracts.
